    There is an article on Wall Street Journal today (4/17/13) (on line and on iPad) about the evolution of shift levers. There are photos and an embedded video, both showing a Model S and also Porsche, Lamborghini, and a Dodge Ram truck. Not sure if you can use this link (if you're not a subscriber), but here goes:

    Interesting that the article says the trend is to free up space for storage bins, smartphone cradles, cup holders and multimedia controllers. Seems Tesla just freed up the space. Period.
